Painful Migraines Were Helped by Chiropractic

Vicky’s dad started seeing a chiropractor for his back when she was 13. After discussing the migraines Vicky suffered from with the chiropractor, he brought her in for a checkup. The chiropractor found subluxations in her neck, so she started care.

“I started care and quickly realised this is what I had been looking for. Good health is our greatest asset, and after living with pain for so long I began to forget what it felt like to be well.”

Vicky soon stopped taking the ten medications she was on for her migraines. The chiropractor empowered her to take care of her health by doing exercises and examining her diet. “For as long as I can remember, I have had a love for science. I knew I would choose a scientific career.” It was this holistic approach and her love of science that inspired her to become a chiropractor. Read more…

Professional Training and Associations

Vicky went on to the Welsh Institute of Chiropractic after completing her A-levels. During her time at university she met some truly inspirational people. It was there that she learnt that chiropractic is about restoring nervous system function through achieving maximum spinal health. After her challenging full-time university training, Vicky became a member of:

  • The General Chiropractic Council
  • The United Chiropractic Association
  • The British Chiropractic Association

She also regularly attends courses and lectures to stay up-to-date on the latest information and research within chiropractic and overall health.

Outside of the Practice

Vicky is originally from Doncaster, where some of her family still remains. She now lives in Hull and stays healthy by going to the gym, running, and doing CrossFit. Through her patients and her own personal experiences, Vicky developed a specific interest in diet and exercise and shares her health expertise with our community through corporate events.

The staff are lovely, so easy to talk to and Dr. Vicky (Chiropractor) really knows what she’s talking about but explains it in a way that actually makes sense! I thought my first visit would be really awkward but it wasn’t at all, I was looked after very well and we had a laugh! I would definitely recommend this to friends and family with no hesitation.

Susan Whittaker – Receptionist

Susan Whittaker, Receptionist at Hull

Receptionist ,
Susan Whittaker

Susan started working at Health Inc Chiropractic in August 2013 as a receptionist. Before working with Dr Vicky Cole (Chiropractor) she thought chiropractors only dealt with back pains but now she understands what a chiropractor actually does. Dr Cole (Chiropractor) has given her several adjustments and she is really feeling the benefit of those. She is sleeping much better, has more energy, has a better posture and her tension headaches “are a thing of the past”. Susan now believes that seeing your chiropractor on a regular basis is equally as important as your visits to the dentist. She would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Health Inc Chiropractic to anyone, just give it a go and you will definitely feel the benefit.Read more…

Susan lives locally with her mother and they have two small dogs at home. She likes to keep fit and has always enjoyed walking (with or without dogs) and having had the chiropractic adjustments she feels has helped her here also. When she arrives at the clinic to start work she switches on the computer, radio, and the TV screen (which is fixed into a wall). The TV shows various slides of chiropractic and healthy eating and nutrition. These slides are for the patients who are sat in the reception area so they can understand more fully about chiropractic and the benefits that go with the same. At the end of each day she ensures that the reception area is neat and tidy ready for the following day.

Paul Brooks

Paul was inspired to study osteopathy and natural medicine after osteopaths had helped him deal with the impact of a serious childhood injury. He qualified at the British College of Osteopathic Medicine in 2007 and has worked in Hull and East Yorkshire ever since. Paul is passionate about natural healing and helping his patients to regain health after illness or injury through natural means. Osteopathy is ideal for this as it is designed to assist the body’s own self-healing processes. It is a safe, natural and holistic treatment, which sees the patient as a whole and is therefore effective for a wide range of different conditions. An osteopath uses gentle, manual techniques to promote health and healing through their effect on muscles, joints, the circulation, the lymphatic system and nerve function.

Micheal Brooke

Before pursuing a career in healthcare, Mike would regularly play basketball and unfortunately sustained a number of lower limb injuries. Due to the frustration in the abilities of public health care, he decided to learn how to fix them himself. He soon developed a passion for injury rehabilitation and decided he wanted to go to university. He graduated from The University of Hull in 2018 as a Sports Rehabilitator. During his time at the university, he learnt how to assess and treat many injuries and how to create exercise progressions that would ensure his clients recover quickly with reduced future injury. His undergraduate dissertation was on the effectiveness of interventions for treating low back pain, which gave him greater knowledge on a condition that affects so many people. He gained 400+ hours of experience while studying in a range of settings including amateur and professional rugby union clubs and private clinics. Mike chose to continue his postgraduate studies on a Master’s Degree in Clinical Anatomy to further expand his knowledge. Mike is a member of The British Association of Sport Rehabilitators and Trainers. Mike attends regular short courses to develop skills in injury rehabilitation, these include:

  • Osteopathic Spinal Manipulation
  • Photobiomodulation Laser Therapy
  • Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilisation
  • Kinesio Taping Leve 1 & 2
  • Pre-Hospital Immediate Care in Sport Level 2

Outside of the Practice Mike is a proud vegan who enjoys clean healthy eating, regular exercise and spending time with his friends and family. Mike is very passionate about holistic healing which involves treating and optimising all aspects of the human body. He strongly believes that by correcting the physical, chemical and emotional stressors placed on the body we can heal, thrive and enjoy our lives.
